John 15:1 (KJV) True Vine Implications

John 15:1 (KJV)
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

The fact that Jesus is the true vine implies that there are other vines:
There is a vine that looks like the real but is not
There are some species of plant life that appear to be one thing but they are not. So there are those who claim to be followers of Christ but are not.

There is a vine that is of the real but is wild
There are those plants that spring out of a species but have stopped producing the fruit of the desired plant. Even so there are groups who have true roots to Christ but are no longer truly Christian.

There is a vine that is different than the true but claims to be the same
Sometimes a plant may be thought to be something it isn’t. Even so some religions may be thought to be true but they are not.

There is a vine that is of the true but has forgotten the true vine
I have a raspberry plant that constantly has vines that try to become their own independent plant. Even so there are Christians who stray away from the Lord to follow after their own ideas.
